Tall Ships Portland celebrates the past, the present and the future

In 2015, sailing ships from all over the world visited Portland, many of them crewed by students from Maine. This event was known as Iberdrola USA Tall Ships Portland 2015.

In 2016, Tall Ships Portland is offering 50 young men and women the chance to go sailing on a tall ship for a week. If you are aged 13 to 18 and would like to apply for a berth aboard a tall ship, please go to our new website, download an application, and change your life by expanding your horizons. Financial aid is available.

Tall Ships Portland is also planning to host visiting sailing ships in 2016. If you are interested in participating in the world of sailing ships, please email us to become a member or to participate as a donor, volunteer, or sail trainee.
